Late collapse sends Bombers to third straight lossJuly 12, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
After a tough loss last night in 15 innings at Henderson, Friday night saw the Dubois County Bombers endure another defeat that will stick with them for awhile.
The Bombers found themselves with a 6-3 advantage heading into the final inning against the Franklin Duelers. However, the Duelers went off for seven runs in the top of the ninth inning as Franklin took advantage of five walks as well as some timely hits to pull off the improbable comeback.
Things looked good for Dubois County early. They led 5-0 after four innings of play thanks to an RBI double from Chase Hug, an RBI single from Tyler Best while three more runs scored on one error.
However, the Duelers slowly worked their way back into the game and took the lead for good on a two-RBI single from John Benevolent in the ninth inning. The Bombers attempted a late rally in the bottom half of the inning as Bryson McNay drove in Matt Ellis with an RBI triple but that would be it for Dubois County.
In his Bomber debut, Cal Krueger started on the mound. He pitched three scoreless innings giving up just two hits and one walk while striking out two Franklin batters.
Offensively, Matt Ellis led the way as he went 4-for-5 while Benji Brokemond, Chase Hug and Bryson McNay all had multiple hits.
